Large German health insurer says up to 3 million people potentially suffered Covid-19 vaccine side effects

One of Germany’s largest health insurance companies, BKK, analyzed the records of 10.9 million insured individuals to determine the rate of Covid-19 vaccine complications and has found alarming data, according to a new report from one of Germany’s best-selling newspapers, Die Welt.

.”According to our calculations, we consider 400,000 visits to the doctor by our policyholders because of vaccination complications to be realistic to this day. Extrapolated to the total population, this value would be three million,” told BKK board member Andreas Schöfbeck to Die Welt.

 “The numbers that resulted from our analysis are very far away from the publicly announced numbers. It would be unethical not to talk about it.”

The new data is an “alarming signal,” added Schöfbeck.

The bombshell letter, which comes at a time when Germany is actively debating a mandatory vaccine, also outlines just how many individuals may have suffered from vaccine side effects in the country. All 400,000 people identified as suffering side effects were identified through a specific code doctors use to list vaccine side effects, according to Schöfbeck.

“If these figures are extrapolated to the year as a whole, 2.5 to 3 million people in Germany likely received medical treatment because of the side effects of vaccination after the Covid-19 vaccination. We see this as a significant alarm signal that must be taken into account when the vaccines are used further. In our opinion, the figures can be validated relatively simply and at short notice by asking the other types of insurance (AOKen, substitute health insurance companies, etc.) to evaluate the data available to them accordingly.”

Schöfbeck indicated that the number of vaccine side effects is far larger than those officially reported by Germany’s Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI), which is the public authority that publishes data on vaccine complications. The BKK ProVita insurance company has now forwarded the data from their records to the PEI.

The health insurance company had the data of millions of insured persons of the BKK group analyzed. Based on the evaluated data, Schöfbeck also concludes that “a risk to human life cannot be ruled out.” He has recently sent a letter to Klaus Cichutek, the president of the PEI, with the letter also delivered to other related organizations.

The fact that the BKA is such a larger health insurer in Germany is lending weight to its claims, with the insurer’s access to millions of anonymized medical records giving it a broad overview of the German population.

4 to 5 percent of the German population

The letter outlines that as much as 4 to 5 percent of the German population may have been affected by vaccine side effects.

So, why the BKK report far more vaccine side effects than the official data from the PEI. Schöfbeck points out that the main cause may be the arduous process of filling out vaccine side effect forms, which overburdens doctors to the point that they simply do not do them.

“In our opinion, there is a significant underreporting of vaccination side effects. It is crucial to identify the causes of this in the short term. We assume that since no remuneration is paid for reporting side effects of vaccinations, the PEI is often not reported because of the great effort involved. Doctors have announced that it takes about half an hour to notify suspected vaccine damage. It means that 3 million suspected cases of vaccination side effects require around 1.5 million working hours for doctors. That would be almost the annual workload of 1,000 doctors. This should also be clarified in the short term.”

The letter has also been forwarded to the German Medical Association, the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians, and the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance
